There has been some interesting work with very long, very narrow banded, log periodics

If it’s very long, the chances are it’s impossible to hold the elements in position. Our radio club had a Yagi-Uda type antenna with elements cut to +/- 0.5 mm, but which move around several hundred mm. It would probably have been okay for MEM (moon earth moon), as the much lower gravity and little atmosphere on the moon  would mean it could probably be supported on the moon. 😂😂😢 Buf on earth it was not useful.
